Tournament Format

There will be 5 games (3 Saturday and 2 Sunday), and all games will be 2.5 hours in length.
All games will use ITC rules, and use the ITC format. The event however, will NOT be a ITC ranking event.

All players are to use (if possible) the ITC Battle App for their games for scoring etc. The App is free to download from the App Store/Google Play sites.  All results MUST be logged into the BCP App (see below), which the ITC App can link to.

Prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd. Best Army (judged by Kirton Games) and Best Individual Single Character Model (Also judged by Kirton Games).  The last-placed player will receive the ‘Cursed Die’ Award.  That player will need to provide a Die for the following year’s event.

Army Lists

Armies must be a maximum of 2000 points, with a maximum of 3 Detachments per army.  All lists must be Battle Forged.

Any Codex released by January 1st, 2020 may be used in the tournament.  The new edition of Codex: Sisters of Battle is expected to arrive too late for this deadline, so anyone wishing to take Sisters of Battle in their army or as part of their army must take the unit entries/rules/stratagems etc from Chapter Approved 2018

All lists must be submitted using the Best Coast Pairings (BCP) App, and MUST be submitted no later than Sunday the 12th of January, 2020.
